Wyoming vs. Tulsa Pick Prediction 9/21/2019
Wyoming at Tulsa—College football pick is Tulsa Golden Hurricane -3. Cowboys past two games have not been too impressive. They went on the road to face a bad Texas St team and wins 23-14. Last week they hosted FCS school in Idaho and win 21-16. This is an offense that is throwing the football for only 81 yards per game and 39.1% completion rate. Cowboys utilizing freshman quarterback Sean Chambers whose numbers in the passing game is atrocious. Against Idaho and Texas St his combined numbers were 12 of 30 with an interception. Have more confidence in the Golden Hurricane offense behind junior quarterback Zach Smith who is completing 63.5% of his passes. Wyoming’s pass defense has not been good giving up 342 yards per game. Play Tulsa -3.

Memphis transfer David Moore made his debut with the Chippewas last week and threw for 20 of 31 for 316 yards. Central Michigan will generate enough offense here to push it over.

Sophomore quarterback Matthew McKay has put up better numbers at home. He went 25 of 37 for 308 yards and a touchdown to East Carolina. He should be able to perform well against this MAC defense. Wolf Pack is running the football effectively for 215 yards per game with 5.3 per run. Play NC State -19.
Old Dominion vs. Virginia Pick Prediction 9/21/2019
Old Dominion at Virginia—College football pick is Old Dominion Monarchs +29. This is a look ahead spot for Virginia because up next for the Cavaliers is Notre Dame. Monarchs come off the bye week for this contest. Old Dominion is defending holding opponents to 335 yards per game with 100 rushing for only 2.9 yards per attempt. Cavaliers could not cover against a down Florida St team last week. This is a good Virginia team that does a good job of running the football. Don’t see the need for head coach Bronco Mendenhall for style points. I expect the game plan here is to shorten the game by focusing with their ground game with ball possession. They want to get this game over with and get ready for Notre Dame next week. Monarchs run defense leads them to the cover. Play Old Dominion +29.
